Parking space disappearing at Iqaluit high rise


I applaud the city and the city council for experimenting with a bus service in this traffic-congested city.

We can tell other Nunavummiut that we now have bumper-to-bumper cars at lunchtime, from the hospital to the Four Corners, almost a half-kilometre of snarly northerners eager to get home for a quick lunch and to turn around and line up the other way. We have way too many vehicles for our size of roads.

The other problem is that the Tulugaq Bar owners have secured all the required permits allowing them to reduce parking at the high rise with a large addition, further reducing parking.

Parking and traffic flow have to be priorities in any new development happening in Iqaluit. That hurdle should be a part of any city permitting process.
